Things to Do in Kauai

Whether you want to see historical sites or just lay on the beach, Kauai offers a myriad of things to do to keep you busy. Here are three destination recommendations to check out during your visit.

The Grove Farm Sugar Plantation Museum

Want to take a step back in time? At the Grove Farm Sugar Plantation Museum, you’ll see first-hand what life was like on one of the first sugar plantations in Hawaii.

Na’ Aina Kai Botanical Gardens

What once began as the landscaping for Joyce and Ed Doty’s home has grown to become Na’ Aina Kai Botanical Gardens, made up of a variety of gardens filled with the largest bronze sculpture collection in the United States.

Smith Family Garden Luau

Every Hawaiian vacation needs to include a luau, and the Smith Family Garden Luau in the Wailua River Valley is one you don’t want to miss. In addition to a great feast, you’ll enjoy watching dancers do the Hawaiian luau, Tahitian drum dances, and the Samoan fire knife dance.

Outdoor Adventures

On Kauai, outdoor adventures abound. Here are just a few beaches that you need to see during your visit to the island.

Poipu Beach Park

With a sheltered beach that lends to calm waters, Poipu Beach Park is not only family-friendly, but the most popular beach on the South Shore of Kauai. Here you can lounge on the sand, wade in the water, snorkel, surf, or boogie board, making it an ideal place for kids and adults of all ages.

Tunnels Beach

If your family enjoys snorkeling, Tunnels Beach is a place you cannot miss. With perfect conditions for spotting turtles and exotic fish, your family can spend all day here exploring the calm, clear water.

Glass Beach

While it’s not necessarily a beach you want to play at, Glass Beach is definitely worth a visit. Near an industrial area, this beach is covered in discarded glass that has become smooth and worn with time to create beautiful, colorful sand.
